Is there a way to tell when looking at the Outlook inbox whether a specific email has automatically been saved to ACT?

We are running ACT Premium Version 21.0.295.0. Update 5

Running on a shared server. Windows platform

We are also using ACT4Outlook

We are using Outlook 2010

 

My question:

Is there a way to tell when looking at the Outlook inbox whether a specific email has automatically been saved to ACT?

 

Some are obviously saved when I have a contact in ACT with the sender’s email set up in ACT.

But I often receive emails where I am not sure if the email has automatically saved or if I need to manually save the email to ACT.

 

Is there an icon or method I can use to look at emails in my Outlook inbox and know where they saved when they came in?

 

Your assistance would be appreciated.

As far as I know the answer is NO but this would make a great feature for ACT or maybe an aspiring add-on designer.

We created something a while back that we use in our own business, looks like this...

What versions of both ACT and Outlook does this work over?

 

Happy to test and then promote to clients if you want to market this.

We run it with Office 365 and Act! 20.1.

If we were to offer it for sale, which would require work to package produce an installable for commercial distribution, documentation etc. No point in supporting prior to Office 2013. No future in building for versions of Office that are 10 years old or prior.
